Hello,

Is SMP enabled in the GENERIC kernel? I have a hyperthreading box, and
on
Linux it shows up with two cpus. When I do a top on the box in FreeBSD I
still
see only one CPU. Also, sysctl -a | grep cpu only shows a dev.cpu.0.

Okay, might be off base here, so someone correct me if
I'm wrong. Don't you also have to remove the following

#ifdef SMP
#ifndef COMPILING_LINT
#error DEVICE_POLLING is not compatible with SMP
#endif
#endif

from /usr/src/sys/kern/kern_poll.c ?

You'll get an error part of the way through building
the kernel otherwise, right? Like I said, that's the
way I remember it. Just trying to save someone some
unnecessary work.
